This. Place. Is. Amazing. Ever since we stopped in for lunch at Jamie Hollander in New Hope last week, I’ve been dreaming about their hearty sandwiches, fresh salads, & gourmet cheeses. While I had often driven past this shop (at the corner of Bridge St & South York Rd.), I had assumed they only did catering. With smoothies, a cafe, a gourmet bakery, a deli, an expansive food store, & so much more, I now know that Jamie Hollinger offers much more. Their daily specials like Grilled Kale and Duck Confit Salad & Crispy Fallafel wrapped in Whole Wheat Nan brings gourmet delicacies to your lunch hour. Last week, I dropped off the Southern Fried Chicken Breast Sandwich with Roasted Shallot Mayonnaise & Baby Spinach to my boyfriend at work, & he is still thanking me for it!
With his background, it’s no surprise that Jamie Hollinger makes such scrumptious food. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of American in 1995, Jamie began an impressive career, starting at the old Forager House in Washington’s Crossing, Pennsylvania and later becoming head chef at The Stockton Inn & a cook at Harvest Moon in Ringoes, NJ. He even studied under the renowned chef, Norman van Aken in Florida.
In 1999, Jamie opened his own restaurant in Doylestown called The Knight House, where he perfected both his culinary and restaurant management skills. After selling the Knight House in 2004, Jamie took some time off, and began to observe that people were spending more time at home and wanted to entertain there. He was inspired to provide professional, chef-quality, gourmet meals that people could take home, creating Jamie Hollander Gourmet Foods and Catering in 2005.
We’re so glad that Jamie decided to bring this concept to Bucks County!
